Although many Chinese students say that their knowledge of English grammar is good, most would admit that their spoken English is poor. Whenever I speak to a Chinese student, they always say, “My spoken English is poor.”  1.

I would like to suggest that there may be some reasons for their problems with spoken English.

First, they fail to find suitable words to express themselves due to a limited vocabulary.

2.However, you can speak with a limited vocabulary, if you choose a positive attitude. Others will follow you as long as you use the words that you know.

3.

Sometimes they make mistakes when they are speaking because they are shy and nervous. Yet students should remember that their goal should be FLUENCY NOT ACCURACY. Your aim in writing is to be accurate following the rules for grammar and using the right words and spelling them correctly. However, in speaking your aim is fluency. You want to get your message across, to talk to someone in English, as quickly and as well as you can, even though sometimes you may use a wrong word or tense , but it doesn’t matter.4.

The third reason is that not enough attention is paid to listening . You have one mouth but two ears !All that hearing is necessary for you to start speaking .

Fourth, most Chinese students are reactive rather than proactive language learners. Instead of actively seeking out opportunities to improve their spoken English they passively wait for speaking opportunities to come to them and wonder why their English always remains poor.5.

A. The person you are speaking to will understand you and make allowances for nay mistakes he hears.

B. They may try to avoid making similar mistakes next time.

C. Obviously the better answer is to expand their vocabulary.

D. If you have this proactive outlook, then you will see English opportunities wherever you go.

E. However, their spoken English does not have to remain “poor”!

F. Second , they are afraid of making mistakes.

G. The second reason lies in the reluctance of using what has just been learned.

It seems that the Englishman just cannot live without sports of some kind. A famous French humourist once said that this is because the English insist on behaving like children all their lives. Wherever you go in this country you will see both children and grown-ups knocking a ball about with a stick or something, as if in Britain men shall always remain boys and women girls! Still, it can never be bad to get exercise, can it? Taking all amateur(业余)and professional sports in Britain into consideration, there can be no doubt that football is at the top of the list. It is called soccer in the United States. The game originated in Britain and was played in the Middle Ages or even earlier, though as an organized game, or “association football”, it dates only from the beginning of the 19th century.

The next is rugby, which is called “football” in the United States. It is a kind of football played by two teams of fifteen players rather than eleven. The rugby, in which an oval-shaped ball is used can be handled as well as kicked. It is a pretty rough game.In summer, cricket is the most popular sport. In fact, it has sometimes been called the English national game. Most foreigners find the game rather slow or even boring,butit enjoys great popularity among the British.

Tennis rates high on the list, too. It was introduced into England from France in the 15th century, but it was from England that it spread to practically every country in the world. Table-tennis or “ping-pong” surely is not played on a great scale as it is in China or in Japan. Basketball and volleyball were introduced into Britain during the late 19th century from America and are gaining popularity. Horse-back riding, swimming, rowing and golf all attract a lot of people.

1.The main purpose of paragraph one is to tell us that the English_______.

A. are all sports lovers

B. behave like children

C. like to kick a ball around

D. can remain young all their lives

2.According to the passage, which of the following is NOT true about football and rugby?

A. They differ in the shape of the ball.

B. They are played by different numbers of players.

C. They both can be handled.

D. They both can be kicked.

3.From the second and the third paragraph, we know that_____.

A. Americans love football most of all

B. British people love rugby most of all

C. Americans and British people may call the same thing differently

D. football originated in Britain in the 18th century

 

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. It is also the most neglect (忽视). Common reasons for not eating breakfast include having no time, not feeling hungry, traditional dislike and dieting. Breakfast simply means “break the fast’’. Your body spends at least 6 to 12 hours each night in a fasting state. In the morning your body needs energy for the day’s work ahead.

A good breakfast should provide 1/3 of your total calorie(卡路里)needs for the day. On average, we eat 400 less calories for breakfast than for dinner. If breakfast doesn’t appeal (吸引) to you in the morning, try eating a lighter dinner earlier in the evening or save half of your dinner for breakfast in the morning. If you still aren’t hungry in the morning, start with something small like juice or toast or have a nutritious (有营养的) mid-morning snack (小吃) later when you are hungry. So, you say you are on a diet. Some people fear that eating breakfast will make them hungrier during the day and they will eat more. It is true that eating breakfast is likely to make you feel hungry throughout the day. That is because your body is working correctly. Although you may feel as if you are eating more all day long, in reality you are probably not.

Not eating breakfast can also cause you t overeat, since a fall in blood sugar often makes you feel very hungry later. To make matters worse, since your body is in a slow state, it will not be able to burn those extra calories very efficiently (有效). If you feed your body healthy snacks and meals throughout the day, you are less likely to become hungry and stuff (填饱) yourself as soon as you begin to eat. Since breakfast is the first and most important meal of the day, choosing the right food is important. The best breakfast foods are fruits ,juice, lean meat and grain products such as bread, rice, noodles and cereals.

1.If you don’t want to have breakfast in the morning, according to the writer’s suggestion, you should________.

A. see a doctor to have an examination

B. have a little supper

C. go to a restaurant to enjoy a good meal

D. have a good supper

2.Eating breakfast, in fact, makes your body_________.

A. work out of order

B. produce too much energy

C. work well

D. feel hungry quicker

3.Not eating breakfast will_________.

A. save a lot of money

B. do harm to your health

C. do good to your health

D. help you keep in shape

4.In the last paragraph the writer mainly_________.

A. persuades us to have a good breakfast

B. tell us what food isn’t suitable for breakfast

C. describes when and how we should have our breakfast

D. tell us what food we should have for breakfast

The Oxford English Dictionary is thinking of adding the Chinese word “tuhao”to its latest edition.The word had become popular in China during the past few months to describe rich people who spend money in wasteful ways.“Tuhao”has been caught on in western countries,either.Similar people are described likewise in his countries.

True speaking,the adoption of the word by foreign countries is example of China’s spreading influence.Foreigners are paying attention to which is happening in China and are picking up some Chinese words.especially the words which express unique

Chinese idea and cannot be easily translated into English. Hopefully,China’s influence for the world will continue to be strengthened with an increasing number of Chinese words adopting by foreign dictionaries.

The results of an admittedly small but telling new study suggest that Medicare and other insures could be spending billions of dollars on screening(拍片检查)smokers for lung cancer that would be better spent on helping them quit and keeping others from starting.The new study indicated that screening more often supported smokers’ beliefs that they could safely continue to smoke.Most participants remained smoker because they believed screening could catch cancer early before it would threaten their lives.

“They compared how hard it was to quit smoking with how easy it was to be screened,”said Steven B. Zeliadt, the lead author of the study. "They engaged in magical thinking that now there's this wonderful painless external test that can save lives."

He and seven colleagues conducted the study of 37 current smokers who were offered lung cancer screening at Department of Veteran Affairs. After being screened and told the results. they were interviewed about their smoking-related health beliefs. For about half of those in whom cancer was not found. "Screening lowered their motivation for quitting." the team reported in July in JAMA Internal Medicine. The participants focused only on lung cancer, ignoring other potential harm of smoking. the researchers wrote.

A national study published four years ago found that annual CT screening for lung cancer three years in a row could reduce deaths among heavy smokers by about 20 percent.In an interview, Dr. Russell P. Harris, a preventive medicine specialist at the UNC-Chapel Hill. noted that "screening is being believed by people as an alternative to stopping smoking. But stopping smoking would have huge benefits for the individual and society." Furthermore, smoking causes many other cancers.

Dr. Harris agreed that rather than screening money is better spent on smoking prevention. He suggested providing free stop-smoking aids. sponsoring anti-smoking advertising and raising taxes on tobacco products and the age at which people are allowed to buy them.

1.What does the new study suggest?

A. Screening technology remains to be advanced and more effective.

B. Screening can find cancer in patients and give them timely treatment.

C. Helping people quit smoking is better than screening them for cancer.

D. Admitting smoking before screening can help one to stop smoking.

2.What effect can screening have on most smokers?

A. They will be scared by the result and quit smoking.

B. They will believe screening can catch cancer early and not quit.

C. They will lose hope and go on smoking.

D. They will know screening costs less than smoking.

3.What does the underlined word“they”(in Paragraph 5)refer to?

A. The smokers screened in the study.

B. Steven Zeliadt and his colleagues.

C. Dr. Harris and his patients.

D. The patients' smoking-related health beliefs

4.Which of the following can be a suitable title for the passage?

A. The Effect of Screening for Cancer Patients

B. Screening Alone Doesn’t Do the Work

C. Screening Has a Say in Cancer Detecting

D. Screening May Not Push Smokers to Quit

 

She has been teased,stared at in the street,and called“the world’s ugliest woman” by cyber bullies(网络地痞).Lizzie Velasquez of Austin,Texas,was born without adipose tissue(肌肉组织)meaning that she has no body fat,and,despite eating up to 60 small meals a day,remains a delicate 27 kilos.The rare condition is thought to affect just two other people worldwide.

Miss Velasquez has now written a second book about her struggle to be accepted,and hopes it will help others in a similar position.In Be Beautiful.Be You the college student shares advice on being unique.how to make and keep good friends,and how to deal with bullying and other negativity.When asked how she deals with being constantly stared at in the street, Miss Velasquez says,“I always go up to these people and introduce myself,or give them my card and say,‘Hi,I’m Lizzie--maybe you should stop staring and start learning.’”

Miss Velasquez says when cyber bullies first started attacking her online it was hard. Eventually she realized that the people mocking her online were just cowards hiding behind a computer screen.

Dear Windows Internet Explorer.

Our relationship has been strained(紧张的)for a long time.Of course. it’s not all your fault,and nor is it a11 mine.Our intermediary is also to blame;my hated Gate-way PC. which runs far too slowly.  But that does not get you off the hook.

You see,Windows Internet Explorer.I can no longer deal with your ridiculous loading time.Sure,at one time I found it attractive--even--sexy for my browser to take ages to log in or load a web page.But not any more  My life is fuller than it was, and I don’t have time for you to semi-load and then stop.

Also.as much as I loved it when we got together,  your refusal to log me into some of my necessary accounts.such as email and MySpace.has become a problem. It was unfair of you, and I should not have submitted to your cruelty and mistreatment.

A third reason for my leaving you may seem mean:you are simply far too sickly. You are constantly contracting new viruses.and your immune system is terrible·I don’t have the time or the money to care for you any more. It may seem unfair,but you will have to survive on your own. I cannot keep curing you.going through and finding all your corrupted(损坏的)files,cleansing our intermediary’s system because you have given it some virus,bug or spyware. It takes far too much time and energy,which I do not have.

Windows Internet Explorer,you did wonderful things for me that,at the time,no other could do.But,my dear.times have changed,and while you have,too,you have not changed enough. I am 16 now,nearly a grown woman,and I cannot tolerate your childish ways  As much as I once cared about you,I fear that the time has come for us to part.

Your former friend,

Kirsty

In today's world, almost everyone knows that air pollution and water pollution are harmful to people's health. However, not all the persons know that noise is also a kind of pollution, and that is harmful to human health, too.

People who work and live under noisy conditions usually become deaf(聋). Today, however, scientists believe that 10 percent of workers in Britain are being deafened by the noise where they work. Many of the workers who print newspapers and books, and who weave(织)cloth become deaf. Quite a few people living near airports also become deaf.

Besides, noise produced by jet planes or machines will make people's life difficult and unpleasant, or even make people ill or even drive them mad.

It is said that a continuous noise of over 85 decibels(分贝)can make people deaf. Now the governments in many countries have made laws to control noise and make it less than 85 decibels.

Where to eat

There are a number of different places to eat in the shopping center.

The Noodle House is small, but very popular. The noodle soup tastes very good, and the fried noodles with roast pork are delicious. Everything is clean and the staffs are friendly. Prices are good too, but you may have to wait quite a long time as the restaurant is so busy.

Roma is a new restaurant. It is very smart, but the pizzas here do not taste good. We didn’t eat our fish as it smelled bad. The waiters looked angry and we thought it was very expensive. This restaurant has to improve.

The Tokyo Restaurant has been here for many years, and the staffs bow to customers when they enter and are very kind. The fish is very fresh and most of the food is delicious. The amount of food you get is quite small, but it always looks nice on the plate.

The Golden Dragon is a large Chinese restaurant. It has a lot of different food. The sweet and sour pork is excellent, the Beijing Duck is famous, and the winter melon soup is good. Go there for a really good meal, but expect to pay a lot. Prices are high.

The Come in Coffee Shop is very modern. There are many sorts of coffee and if you like sweet things, wait until you taste their cakes and cookies! You can also have sandwiches —— I enjoyed the egg sandwiches a lot. They have modern music playing , but it is very noisy, so it is quite difficult to have a conversation.
